Phew! July was perhaps the most difficult month for me, with my writing energy dropping to an all-time low. I do apologise for being erratic with my blogging, but this was a huge change for me and I’m trying (somewhat successfully so far) to not feel guilty about it. I desperately need a boost of inspiration to lift me from my gloom and I’m so glad I had the foresight to make The Inspiration Circle a monthly series.

I can’t believe I finally have the time and energy to write a post on Monday! I was going back and forth on the idea of having a post up today, but I’m glad I pushed myself. As usual, this is born out of a random idea I had at dinner. I was mildly annoyed that I had around 30+ things on my to-do list and it was already 9 PM when this realisation struck me. It was powerful enough to get me back to blogging again, so I’m not complaining. In fact, as I finish this post, I’ll be ticking one thing off that mile-long list.
This is a stream of consciousness post. If you’re new to the concept, please Google it. Typically, this is where I would do my job of being a good writer and include an explanation for those unfamiliar with it, but I don’t have the energy for it. Neither do I have the energy to insert a fancy photograph with the title of the post that I usually make with Canva. My excuse is the same. I’m unable to get up and walk the three steps it takes from my room to my desk where my personal laptop rests. What all of the schooling and college life doesn’t teach you is how exhausting Mondays can be.
